About the Author: Doug Thorpe

I am a leadership coach and adviser for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs. I Can Help YOU Build a Stronger Leadership Team in Your Business.

Essentially…I allow you to focus on running the business instead of fighting PROBLEMS. I eliminate the STRESS that comes with being the Leader.

WHO DO I WORK WITH? C-suite, middle managers, new first-time managers, and Entrepreneurs; all in companies from $500K to $25 million.

DEFINITION of ‘LEADERSHIP TEAM’ – anyone you’ve hired to manage a work team in your company. When we need managers, too often we select people we think we like the most or trust the best to be our frontline managers or department heads. In the process, we often crush a good producer. To get the best result, we need to provide them some coaching so they can make the shift from front-end employee to manager and LEADER.

My coaching is adding a brand new, low resistance way to get more from the management team around you. This is NOT me making a plea for MORE business. This is ME helping you gain COMPLETE control of your freedom and growth.
